Encore Capital Management, the developer of Plantation Walk, the $350 million mixed-use office, retail, residential, and hotel destination, has named CREC to manage leasing of the project’s nearly 200,000 square feet of available retail space.
“The retail component of Plantation Walk will set the project apart from any other destination in Broward County,” said Carol Brooks, President of CREC, Florida’s leading, independent, full-service commercial real estate firm. “We’re excited to curate a retail lineup that reflects the needs of residents as well as the visitors who will frequent the project’s signature restaurants and shops. We’re looking for a mix of local flavor and national brands that provide the community with unique, creative and compelling options that have long been lacking.”
The firm is excited to bring in a specialty grocer as well as new-concept, chef-driven restaurants, health and wellness options and other retailers that will continue to infuse energy and excitement into the project.
Once completed, Plantation Walk will create a downtown-style destination that infuses resort-level hospitality throughout a walkable, seamlessly connected community of shopping, dining, entertainment, living and working.
CREC Senior Vice President and Director of Retail Steven Henenfeld and Vice President Rafael Romero will oversee leasing and marketing for Plantation Walk. The company enjoys a long track record of reshaping the retail blueprint of lifestyle shopping destinations throughout Florida.
“CREC has proven time and time again their in-depth understanding of South Florida’s retail landscape. The team’s creative approach to identifying the right brands will play a vital role in Plantation Walk’s success and we are excited to have them on board,” said Arthur Falcone, CEO and Managing Principal of Encore Capital Management.
Encore Capital Management began construction work on the new infrastructure in November 2017, which is located on site of the former Fashion Mall.
